Calling All Penguins Fans!

Postby Hrisitooo on Tue Jun 04, 2013 8:56 am

I am a PhD student at Pitt doing research on Penguins fans!

I am currently looking for Penguins fans to complete a short survey about their favorite team. You would be entered into a drawing for one of three $50 gift cards.

If you are interested, please take the survey at the following link:

http://katz.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_ei0N70jzZ3EYNlX

Please complete the survey by 8 PM EST TOMORROW, June 5, in order to be entered into the drawing for the three gift cards.

The winners will be notified on Thursday, June 6.

Thank you in advance for your help. I'd be happy to share the results of my research if anyone is interested. Just send me an email at hrd5@pitt.edu.

Thanks again!
Hrisitooo

I call BS. A PhD student should know better than to present a survey for research in this manner.

Yeah, sad but sometimes true. If I were his advisor, though, I wouldn't sign off on this.

I meant it more as "This is very typical for people who need to get participants in their research".

Especially when you need a broad demographic. Posting a research survey on the internet is extremely common now.

Yes, I see. Very true. LinkedIn, FB, and other social media are great places to gather data.

Hey, OP, I'll offer this tip with good intention: As a matter of process, you need to provide your potential participants with more information than that which you've provided here in this thread and in the intro to your survey. Ask your advisor.

Ah, I see. Sorry for my presumptiveness. Hey, OP, I'll offer this tip with good intention: As a matter of process, you need to provide your potential participants with more information than that which you've provided here in this thread and in the intro to your survey. Ask your advisor.


If he gave us any more information, it may "give away" what his survey hopes to accomplish, and therefore would affect how we answer his questions (I've had to conduct these surveys before).

Typically, a survey like this gives you a debrief at the end which tells you what they are trying to accomplish after the survey. I think he would tell you if you asked about it.

EDIT: I saw your edit, Dish. I think I answered the question you had.

MRandall, yes, I agree. I was just looking for more than "I'm researching Pens fans, period." I wasn't looking for an abstract of his proposal. Hopefully, the sample size and respondent rate will mitigate the impact of respondent bias in the presence of some very general info. :fist: :)

Good luck, OP. I didn't mean to sound harsh.

Did anyone else answer the same question 5 times?

That's typical procedure to make sure you aren't lying when you say "I took this seriously"

Creating a really good survey instrument is harder than it seems. I stress a bit over them, anyway! :D
